I received an email invitation today to “Join The Washington Post and Newsweek in St. Paul, Minn., for live coverage from 4-6 p.m. ET and 7-11 p.m. ET. The Post’s Chris Cillizza and Newsweek’s Jon Meacham bring you the latest news, live floor action and interviews with delegates and other guests. For more information, visit washingtonpost.com.”

You expect me to watch video coverage provided by the WaPo of the RNC?


What. Is. Wrong. With. You. People?

I am not a Tennessee redneck. I am not one of those “uneducated, and easily led” fundamentalist Limbaugh-listening ditto-head automatons that you imagine inhabit flyover country. I have an undergraduate degree from Davidson College, and a graduate degree from Stanford U. (I was a classmate of Tony Snow’s at DC). I have worked in both the private sector and the public sector – six years as a city manager in TN. I read voraciously, and am intensely interested in history and politics. May I just say, based on a thorough read of the coverage of the presidential campaigns of the last 3 days:


You have ruined your profession. You have ruined your newspaper. Your continued babbling is only embarrassing yourselves. You are dinosaurs.

Sarah Palin is going to surprise you tonight. And McCain-Palin will thoroughly surprise you in November.

I am looking forward to the weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth.

Instead of evacuating New Orleans, we should shut down Washington DC for 6 months and evacuate everyone who works for the federal government and/or the mainstream media. You should all be compelled to spend six months on a farm or in a small town, with an intact middle-class family with kids.


Don’t any of you have wives? or daughters? or mothers?

You should be ashamed of yourselves.

BTW, you can watch unedited, live, streaming video of the convention – without having to put up with ANY moonbat commentary, or even commercial interruptions, at this URL: http://www.ustream.tv/rnc/

When the coverage is not live, they are re-broadcasting the speeches and presentations from the previous session. I HIGHLY recommend it. Boycott the MainStream Media.
